Tesco: Breakdown cover 'essential' this winter

30 November 2005
Car insurance may not be enough this winter as weather threatens to worsen, says Tesco Personal Finance.

The insurance provider says drivers should add breakdown cover to their policies to ensure they are not stranded if they break down during bad weather.

Tesco says over ten thousand vehicles will have to be rescued after breaking down on Christmas Eve and Christmas day this year alone.

Drivers can also get good advice on how best to avoid breakdowns this Christmas by adhering to Tesco's 'top ten festive travelling tips', which include checking tyre treads, keeping headlights clean and leaving enough time to complete long journeys.

Details of Tesco's insurance policies and breakdown cover can be found on the Tesco website.
